session format

When you and your counselor meet, you will do most of the talking. To make our first meeting the most productive, it helps if you complete the paperwork ahead of time and bring it with you.

We will discuss confidentiality and its limits, how Accessible Career is paid, any questions you may have about us working together In our first meeting, you can begin to tell me your story and we can discuss any goals you may have. It may take more than one session for you to discuss potential areas that you would like to work on.

After that, we will begin to set goals, develop objectives, and work on your goals. Counselors at Accessible Career often assign homework and reading outside of our sessions so that you can accelerate your progress. We will work together to decide when you are done with counseling.

payment

Fees for appointments are paid at the beginning of each session. You can pay by cash, check, credit/debit (MasterCard, VISA, Discover, or AMEX) including flexible spending accounts (FSA), and PayPal. You are responsible for payment of the full fee and we can discuss insurance when we meet. Online appointments can be paid by a credit/debit card on file or by PayPal to kimdparker@accessiblecareer.com.

counseling appointments and fees

Are you struggling to manage your AD/HD, anxiety, depression, Asperger’s/ASD or other condition and your career? Not certain what steps to take to get working again? Let’s meet up to explore some options and develop a plan to get you launched. Schedule a session to get started!

You and your counselor will begin meeting weekly for the first several sessions. The minimum frequency to meet is every other week if clinically appropriate. Less frequent meetings (maintenance) can occur when goals have been met upon agreement by the counselor and client.

You can select the following session lengths to fit your budget:

  1. Sixty (60) minute intake (in person only) for $200.
  2. Forty-five (45) minute session (in person or online) for $150.
  3. Thirty (30) minute session (in person or online) for $100 if clinically appropriate.

You may be able to get reimbursement for your session fees from your insurance through “out of network” benefits. Check with your insurance when scheduling your appointment. If none of these options work for you, call me to discuss your situation as I have a few limited-time, reduced-fee spots available. You can also check out affordable counseling available in the Houston area.
